Hospice’s physical support makes it easier to keep pain levels under control and reduce discomfort and secondary symptoms often associated with life limiting illnesses. The intent is not to provide a cure for the disease, rather to improve quality of life so you maintain a higher degree of independence longer. Pediatric patients may benefit from pain management in conjunction with curative treatments. 

Our caseworker was very flexible when we had to change our time. Whenever we had to change the schedule around she was willing to work with us.

While we will remain available to provide support and supervision as necessary, our team will listen to your cues and provide you with guidelines and modifications to keep personal care tasks safe and comfortable. As your needs change, your care plan will adapt to meet them.

Pain and symptom relief is provided by using the latest technology and medical advances.
